Sounds like something is under the keyboard in that area. anything spill down there? you should be able to open the unit, and remove keyboard,and blow it out with compressed air(DO NOT do that while it's still installed in computer)

    What is the meaning of thinkpad?

    The meaning? There is no implicit meaning behind the term thinkpad, it was a made up term by IBM for their laptops. The ThinkPad name itself was inspired by leather-bound pocket notepads issued to all IBM employees with the corporate motto 'Think' embossed on the cover. The combination of Think and NotePad lead to the name ThinkPad. IBM's corporate naming team was initially against using the ThinkPad name since all previous IBM computers were referred to by model numbers rather than names. However, the popularity of the ThinkPad brand with the press convinced IBM to retain the name.

    Can't get the IBM Think Pad 600E to start.

    You need to get into the BIOS setup.

    Turn off power to the computer. Wait about 30 seconds. Hold down the F1 key while you turn
    on power and keep holding down that key until the setup screen comes up. Go to the network boot section and disable Network Boot. Save setting and restart. That should fix it.

    'stuck key' on IBM ThinkPad 390E (2626-DOU)

    goto the device manager and uninstall the keyboard and restart the system. check that the error is still coming..

    If still the error remain same ...shutdown the system and power off and just clap the each and every key of the keyboard to release the keys if any stuck. Check that error by rebooting the system. Hope that the problem is solved.

    If still not then maybe the keyboard is going bad.
